Emotive language is used to reflect his desperation and longing for Daisy, also revealing his inner conflicts and disappointment in the reality of her.

According to literary critic, John Kuehl, “Scott Fitzgerald's style shows "shaping" or "a molding of the confusion of life into form,"7 and "pruning" or economy.

With everything that Poe had to go through in his life it is more evident on why he implemented on being dark, having his writing about death, and his drinking and gambling habits (Levin, Krupat 2013). When Poe is thought of he is instantly called a writer of the dark. Yes, but why, maybe the fact that he fell in love and was married and then his wife passed away. I believe that would make anybody turn at least a little on the bitter side.
It eludes us then, but that’s no matter - to-morrow we will run faster, stretch our arms out farther... And one fine morning -” (Fitzgerald 180).
